Wilpena Pound is an amazing natural range and well worth spending some time in walking through the bushland and spotting kangaroos and emus.

If you cannot go on a long hike from here then at least you can see some native animals in the wild roaming freely about. Saw approx 8-10 emu's together and a family of 4-5 kangaroos also. There is also a solar power installation worth a look.

Spectacular scenery! This place is amazing with the ever changing environment and natural features. Book a plane flight to see the true expanse and beauty of this area. Well worth visiting.

The information centre was informative and the staff helpful. We enjoyed bushwalking here. We were also able to organise a flight over the pound (& Lake Eyre).

We stayed for 4 nights in the luxury Safari Tents ( called Ikara Safari Camp ) in July 2015 . They are very well appointed with all mod cons in the true "glamping" style. Great size and very modern bathroom. They are air conditioned ( at least the bedroom is ) but our group of 6 all had issues with... More

Had a great flight for 40 minutes over Wilpena Pound and surrounding areas. Pilot gave an excellent commentary for the flight, pointing out features and history. Excellent photographic opportunities. Would recommend this flight.

Glad that some sightseeing accessible by normal car on dirt road. The pound is amazing. The shuttle bus shortened the walking time by taking us into the bottom of walking track. There are buses at 9,11 and 13 o'clock, cost only $5 for the return trip. We were picked up 2 hours afterwards,giving plenty time for sightseeing.
